I would like to say that I am very excited to be a part of this forum. I am only 15 years old, and I know not many young people may come across as people who are interested in literature and writing, but I happen to be one of those few. My friend got me into these kinds of things a few months ago. He had me read the books "Perks of being a wildflower" and "Looking for Alaska" and while doing so, he had me attempt to decipher all the metaphors within those books which is really what I enjoy doing. I came up with a brief synopsis of a novel recently. My friend can't recommend any more books for me to read, and I am really looking for a certain type of book. So if I can't find it, why not make it myself? I am aware fully that writing a novel is an extremely lengthy process which may takes months or even years. I am also the kind of person who is REALLY interested in something one week, and then loses interest in it the next. So this may be an on and off project for me if I even decide to do it. I just wanted to tell you guys a bit about myself and why I joined here. Thanks!
